Consultant in Neonatal Medicine
Southmead Hospital, Bristol
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic neonatal consultant to join our Regional Tertiary Neonatal Unit. You will be joining a team of 10 consultants providing clinically excellent care to all babies across the South Western Operational Delivery Network. We are looking for an individual who would be able to take up this post as soon as possible.
The Neonatal Unit at Southmead is a tertiary centre with excellent clinical outcomes and is recognised for its particular work within the field of neonatal neurology and neurosurgery. We work closely with our neighbouring unit at St Michael’s Hospital as joint lead centre for the northern half of the newly assigned South West Neonatal Network.
We have 34 neonatal cots of which 16 are designated intensive/high dependency. We provide a service for North Bristol Trust maternity, obstetric and fetal medicine departments, as well as accepting extremely preterm and sick babies from local level 2 centres.
We provide a tertiary service for neonatal neurology and neurosurgery, and for babies below 27 weeks gestation. In 2015 we admitted 747 babies and undertook 5578 days of intensive and high-dependency care. We sit amongst the units with the lowest perinatal mortality rates in the UK (MBRRACE 2014 and 2015).
The unit is closely associated with the University of Bristol, providing teaching for undergraduate medical students, and a strong focus for research. We provide excellent training for medical graduates, including neonatal ‘grid’ trainees. The unit participates in international bench-marking and quality improvement work with the Vermont Oxford Network. We work with a motivated team of ANNPs, neonatal nurses, nursery nurses and community liaison nurses to provide a holistic and family-centred service. The post will attract 10 PAs and will work a shift system during on call hours.
